The growth of the human population continues to put enormous pressure on the environment. The demands on land for development in almost every country around the world is having devastating effects on wildlife and the habitat it needs to survive. It is of the utmost importance that we continue to educate people especially the young about the role that we and all animals play within the delicate fabric of life on earth.

Siberian Tiger Critically Endangered
